    New Rules

    Just curious on how the decision was made to add an extra second (4sec)per string for disabled in 3.4.2, instead of the standard 3sec per string procedural. In my case I am A class in PCCO(84.11)and RFRO(80.57) shooter for seven of the 8 courses of fire... the 3 sec per string penalty lets me shoot B class scores whereas 4sec puts me in the C class area for Outer Limits. I agree that the 2sec penalty used in recent major matches may be too short, but I don't know of too many A or B class shooter that takes 4 sec to take that 3rd shot. Seems like an extra second is added as a reward for not being able to move quickly...Steel Challenge is about speed shooting... USPSA is about speed of movement and speed of shooting. Maybe Outer Limits should be eliminated so everyone can compete purely on shooting skills. At 72 years, old Steel challenge has allowed me to continue to compete in the shooting sports whereas in USPSA I am more of a participant. edyan A646

    Outer Limits disabled shooter penalty?

    Curious to know if disabled rule was applied in last National or World speed shoot and if so ...what it was? Edyan A646

    I joined in 1984...I shot in the 1986 Nationals in Dallas as well... great match...shot my Clark bowling pin gun ...still have it ...I wonder how many of those early comp guns are still around in the safes...they should hold a vintage pin gun match along with single stack. edyan A646
  4. I did the same thing transitioning to weak side...took the big button off & left the extended release button...works just as fast.

    First range trip w/Ruger PC **video**

    My Ruger PC Carbine is set up pretty much the same...I left the bolt handle & the stock alone...Allchin comp works good as you can seen in the video, the gun stays flat & you can see the direction of the charge. I stuck two Beretta cheek pads together & it's high enough to work with the old CMore...Magwell works perfect, I left the big button off and just use the extended release that it is attached to. I found it easy to bump that big button accidentally and it works the same way without it. I shoot mostly steel now as I'm 72 & don"t move so well any more (elderly class ) but the reflexes are still good and I really like this carbine...got me to A class after two steel challenge matches. There are a few videos that show how capable the Ruger is & like Taran Butler said...you can't beat it for the price.

    I left original hammer spring in...no light strikes...about 500 rounds, works perfectly so far.

    I shoot mostly steel challenge now...the old body doesn't move to well any more...too many replacement parts & more needed...

    Mine is A646...started shooting IPSC in 1980 when 1911 .45 was it...then someone brought one with a 6" barrel (hmm... he could load it lighter & still make major) and we were off to the races. Still have my 1984 range officer card...it's a little out of date

    I would prefer a stronger spring for the mag release...I accidentally touched the mag release with the back of my thumb near the palm, when switching to weak side during a match this weekend...didn't realize it, took the first shot then nothing...had to reload with new mag...cost me precious time.

    I just put the volquartsen trigger kit in & it's really good...the stock trigger is not bad but this is a lot better 2.5lbs with much shorter reset.

    Outer Limits disabled shooter penalty?

    Is penalty still at the discretion of the CRO or automatic 3 sec.

    Thanks for the reply....looks like the way to go for a nice trigger...I can use the extra parts for my 10/22

    When using Volquartsen trigger kit, is it just part replacement or is there polishing etc. involved ?
